Elim

Elim [N] [E] [H]

(strong trees ), ( Exodus 15:27 ; Numbers 33:9 ) the second station where the Israelites encamped after crossing the Red Sea. It is distinguished as having had "twelve wells (rather fountains) of waster, and three-score and ten palm trees." It is generally identified by the best authorities with Wady Garundel , about halfway down the shore of the Gulf of Suez. A few palm trees still remain, and the water is excellent.
